Physicians Assistants are vital health care extenders for your Orthopaedic Surgeon.
Our practice relies on PA’s to assist in surgery and often see patients daily as they make the rounds in hospital. PA’s will chart your progress and speak with your surgeon several times a day about your status. PA’s gather information for the physician on ER patients, and assist in prepping patients for surgery. You’ll see your PA before and after surgery in the clinic and at our local hospital, and often at clinics during the week for urgent needs, injections and pre-surgical health physicals. With exceptional training and certification, you can rely on these valuable professionals as capable, compassionate members of the care team.
